Eleea is a force to be reckoned with; making music that juxtaposes sensitivity and strength. Eleea’s raw, powerful voice is what first captures your attention, then her intelligent, emotive songwriting captivates and holds you until her final breath.
Since beginning her career at 15, Eleea has become an award winning singer-songwriter and recognised as a rising talent in the Australian music scene. She has played numerous festivals (Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Mullumbimby Music Festival, Byron Bay Bluesfest, Buskers By The Creek Festival); corporate gigs (Miss World Australia crowning ceremony, Pacific Fair VIP official opening, Gold Coast City Council’s Australia Day celebrations, Gold Coast’s International Women’s Day celebrations); supported touring acts (Stonefield, Kate Martin, Karise Eden); and has performed and busked throughout Australia and internationally.
Eleea has recorded two independent releases: ‘Human’ (album, 2011) and ‘Lion’ (EP, 2016). Upon its release, the title track from ‘Human’ peaked in the top 10 of the Triple J Unearthed charts, while ‘Lion’ officially debuted on 102.9 Hot Tomato’s Gold Coast Uncovered segment. ‘Lion’ was a passion project that integrated Eleea’s eclectic taste in music and broad vocal range, and was brought to life under the guidance of producers Chris Naughton and Guy Gray (David Bowie, Midnight Oil, Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, Cindy Lauper and Paul Kelly.) In 2018, Eleea won a prestigious Queensland Music Award in the Funk/Soul/R&B category, for her song “Without You” (Lion EP, 2016).
Aside from Music, Eleea has also been a Miss Universe Australia national finalist (2014), Miss World Australia top 10 finalist (2016), and won the Miss World Australia talent section (2016). She’s also a strong ambassador for the Animal Welfare League of Queensland, and regularly volunteers her time and talents to children, animals and people with special needs.
Eleea’s talent is instinctual and intense, emerging from a fierce passion for her art. If two original albums, three music videos, hundreds of knock out performances and an even greater amount of unique songs have been achieved already, the question on everybody’s lips is: what will we see next?
